Sweet Potatoes Home Fries – 3 WW Pts

My mother in law gave me a recipe a while ago for sweet potato fries. We like those, but this recipe is SO much better! I was a little worried about the combination of oregano and sweet potatoes, but it’s so good. We eat these at least once a week.

One tip that I read somewhere is to microwave the potato for a minute or so (be sure to poke some holes). Nuking the sweet potato makes it easier to cut.

Sweet Potato Home Fries (by ME!) – 3 WW Pts – 2 servings
1 large sweet potato – cubed
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp Oregano
2 tsp olive oil

Heat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir until potato cubes are well coated.

Pour into glass or metal pan – make sure you have a single layer of potato cubes. Bake 30-45 minutes (depending on the size of the potato) until crispy.

    I’m with you–every ingredient in this salad is a winner on it’s own. Together? Forgetaboutit! The colors are beautiful and I can imagine how great it tastes with the balance of bitter, sweet, and tart.

    Love the new layout, also. Way to go!

    It’s so funny, because as I was scrolling through Tastespotting tonight and saw this post, I had to click because it looked so familiar to my winter couscous bowl… and then, I couldn’t believe it when I saw my blog credited at the bottom! This is a first for me πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the credit!

    So you’ve recently moved back to Cincinnati? Which part? My family and I live in Anderson Township.

      We work in West Chester and are living in Oakley right now. Trying to find a house at some point…

    I think this sounds amazing, Jen! And I love how colorful it is. I am always looking for new winter salads that are colorful, flavorful, and interesting.

      This is definitely colorful, flavorful, and interesting. I have seriously been OBSESSED with pomegranates this winter, and this salad totally feeds into that obsession.

    This is perfect for that kale and pomegranate I have in the fridge! I’m always excited to find new things to put together ahead of time for lunches and dinners, thanks! Hope you are settling in nicely πŸ™‚

    • beantownbaker — January 14th, 2013 @ 3:49 pm

      I couldn’t agree more. Making food ahead of time saves the day during the week! I can’t imagine not eating leftovers… Things are going pretty well for us in Ohio so far. Hope things are going well for you and your little bundle on the way!

    I was thinking about an easy and colorful, flavorful, and power-packed healthy side dish to bring for a potluck lunch after a trail work party this coming weekend. I had these amazing cute pumpkins to harvest from my garden and love both kale and quinoa. I thought to myself, mmmm, what if I made some kind of pumpkin kale quinoa and goat cheese salad to share? One quick internet search and I came across this gem! I modified and concocted a tad, which is normal for me. Thanks so much for the recipe and ingredient confirmations! The honey, olive oil, and smokey / spicy combo was the secret ingredient for me! Happy fooding!

      Glad you enjoyed it! I am always tweaking recipes to make them fit what I have on hand and what we like too.
